What variety? Some are little bush plants, some grow 24-30", some grow 6 feet+ tall.
You can probably get enough off each plant to throw into a salad. It takes a ton of pea plants to start getting enough, especially ripe at the same time, for a dinner. I had two 8-foot rows of Alderman Tall Telephone peas last year, and got enough shelled peas for two dinners. *sigh* Then the weather got too hot. Grrr.
